Tim O'brien — I've Endured lyrics

Born in the mountains, many years ago
Climbed these hills and valleys through the rain and snow
I've seen the lightning flashin', heard the thunder roll

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/tim-obrien-ive-endured-lyrics.html ]
Barefoot in the summer, on into the fall
Too many mouths to feed, they couldn't clothe us all
Sent to church on Sunday to learn the golden rule

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure

I've worked for the rich, I've lived with the poor
I've seen many heartaches and I'll see many more
I've lived loved and sorrowed, been through success's door

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure

Songwriters: DAVID REED, OLA REED
